Practice Manager of the Year Awards

Practice Manager of the Year Awards

Where could a fabulous $5,000 travel voucher take you?

Be recognised and rewarded for your special contributions to medical, specialist, dental or allied health practice management.

Each state selects its own State Practice Manager of the Year, who receives flights, accommodation and registration for the 2018 National Conference in Canberra. The recipient of each State Practice Manager of the Year Award is then a finalist for the National Practice Manager of the Year Award.

The 2018 National Practice Manager of the Year will also be the recipient of a $5,000 travel voucher, with thanks to our National Partner, AGPAL and QIP.
